that the defense attorney brought out. and she focused in and brought the real big picture. and the real big picture is, what does the totality of the evidence show? it shows a girl that did not like her life. had two options. one option was to be a mom. or go back to her single life. she chose to sacrifice her baby. i think the jury will see the arguments of baez and what he is looking for is not acquittal but maybe one or two on the jury to decide with them so he can have a hang or hold out and possibly a hung jury. >>greg: the legal panel will be with us through the hour. plus, live updates from the courthouse in orlando and more on the closing arguments from both the prosecution and the defense. thanks to the venture card from capital one, we get double miles on every purchase, so me and my lads earned arip to san francisco twice as fast we get double miles every time we use our card... i'll take these two... ...no matter what we're buying. ...and all of those. and since double miles add up fast, we can bring the whole gang! it's hard to beat double miles! whoa dude.

to be an american? not a big change when president obama came to office. what does that say to you? guest: remarkable continuity about something that is very important in defining this as a people. it does not seem to matter whether we have a democratic or republican president. we are patriotic nonetheless. host: james, pittsburg, republican line. caller: my comment is that you have to poll the younger crowd and they are the strongest and the fastest and most easily -- and it is easier for them to take in all the information they have take in. they are more alterable to become a soldier and not many of them are politically savvy. once they get into the war, they are generally -- most of the men i know that have come back especially from this war and from vietnam, they speak to the fact that they were fighting for its other. host: we will leave it there. guest: that is true. men who have had that experience in war talk about it that way. they also love their country. one of the things we see, it's a hard thing to take polls of soldiers because it's tough to do. but when you do, they are ve
a list gln the big problems aren't going to go away if you cut a mini deal. all it does is delay the moment of truth and so i would say better now than then but if we can't then we'll take the savings we can get now and relitigate this as we get closer to the election. >> the white house does not love the idea of a mini deal. white house officials telling me the president made it clear he believes it is in the country's economic interest to get a significant long-term deal done. we'll see. john? >> so it's independence day, how did the president spend his time? >> largely oust sight, john. although he did judge wrap up posing for pictures and hugging babies and shaking hands with the armed forces here. some of the military families invited not white house for the independence day celebration. and the president did pay tribute to our men and women in uniform. take a list gln thes listen. >> these american patriots, all represented today and all of you who are out there today, you are the reason why america and our armed forces remain the greatest force for peace and security that
state constitutions, and virginia is the big exception to this because they're the ones, as john just pointed out, established religious freedom, separation of church and state and so forth. if you look at these state constitutions, though, and, you know, i don't have a political axe to grind on this question, but it does fascinate me that almost all of them have very, very specific religious, christian if not protestant qualifications for holding office. so you have pennsylvania, for example. the most radical, democratic constitution of them all. in order to serve the government in pennsylvania, you have to uphold the divine inspiration of the old and new testaments. you know, you have to believe in a god. vermont is the one i love. 177 -- as a historian at least, right? 1776 constitution of the independent state of vermont, you know, today this bastion of kind of secular liberalism upholds the idea that, you know, all people serving in government must believe in the inspiration of -- divine inspiration of the old and new testaments, obey the soundness and be a protestant. so you've
and if they agree to a big $4 trillion deal large enough that they would be able to agree to those tax increases. the problem for the white house is the clock is ticking and time's running out. >> pelley: nancy, is there anything on the books in terms of meetings with the president and the house and senate leadership? >> there's nothing right now, scott. in fact, all you hear is a lot of heat going back and forth. the president saying congress needs to get to work, republicans saying we're workinging, if you want to meet with us, come on down to capitol hill and meet with us. the senate has canceled its entire fourth of july recess, they were supposed to be gone all this week. instead they're going to be here starting tomorrow but it's very unclear what they're going to be doing because the president doesn't actually have any meetings scheduled with the top republican negotiators. >> pelley: of course, on this july 4 it's a day for parades and we saw a lot of presidential candidates in parades today. there was mitt romney in new hampshire. we saw michele bachmann in iowa. and i wonder, john, if
this was a big conspiracy to frame this man. what i learned is -- and i discussed this with geronimo -- we are experiencing men and women who thought the end justified the means. they thought they had a bad man and it was ok to do anything necessary to convict him. as i look back on my career, present and future, i think we see that that is the concept that runs through police misconduct. i am sure there are officers who were just bad, let's say. i think officers see what they consider bad people, and they feel like they have to do what ever it takes to convict them. and i have seen it when i was a young lawyer, when we had narcotics teams, we would get clients to said they arrested me with $20,000 and they said i only had $10,000. and we knew there were telling the truth. it i have seen it with law- enforcement officers in the case where a rogue cop shot a young girl, and the four other officers were all good men. remember -- you talk about misconduct, but primarily -- i want to get back to this -- most law enforcement people i have grown to know in my career are good and i think want to
